A bill has been introduced, as expected, in the Romanian Chamber of Deputies, which would declare Saint Andrew, as a new annual, November 30, non-working public holiday in Romania.
The aforementioned bill was signed by 43 members of parliament, including the president of the Chamber of Deputies, Roberta Ansti, and most likely stems from a request, earlier this year (07-Jun-2011), by the Romanian Orthodox Church Patriarch, who had petitioned the Romanian Chamber of Deputies for it to declare November 30, the feast of St. Apostle Andrew, as a new annual legal public holiday.
Recall that the last public holidays added to list of annual non-working public holidays in Romania, the Dormition of the Most Holy Mother of God, was approved by Romania's Parliament (09-Oct-2008) a few months after the Patriarch of the Romanian Orthodox Church had filed a similar request with the Romanian Parliament to make August 15 one of the Romanian legal public holidays (19-Aug-2008).
